A Spotlight on Patricia Polacco…Author Study
In second grade, we have really been nailing down our narrative elements. Over the past two weeks, we have been thinking deeply about our reading while comparing and contrasting characters, making connections, and responding to texts.

With only three weeks left in the school year, this is a post geared toward teachers. Today I want to celebrate and share something that works really well in my classroom: my Star Student of the Week program. It has evolved over the years as the kindergarten curriculum has become much more rigorous and full, and I am very happy with the simplified version, which preserves the integrity of my original vision for Star of the Week as a character- and community-building program. It's a means for…
